I know this type of meditation but I am not good at it and I am a little bit worried that it takes my inspiration away, so I am not practicing it. I voted for 1-2 mins or less.
I heard that women are better at it than men.
My brain is kind of hyperactive, so it's pretty hard for me to actually stop and meditate. Sometimes I'm able to when I go to bed and start to enter a sleepy state. Then I'm able to force my brain to go silent and meditate.
Otherwise during the day, not an easy task...
@Cosmo 's comment reminds me that weed will become legal in Canada this summer if everything goes as expected. Perhaps it might be possible for me to reach more easily a calm and relaxed state with edibles...
It's a good advice. Yeah, they're gonna test big time. In my case, it would only be about getting relaxed a bit with a super tiny dose. At home. Definitely not before driving, as the same rules as alcohol (and common sense) apply.
It depends on the time, what's going on personally and what I feel both personally and from things happening in the world - it can be anywhere from a few minutes to having to wait because I can’t focus due to too much going on, my brain is a wild thing which never helps. Sometimes when I’m in the middle of stillness I’ll have a disruption but I’m now able to bring focus and pull myself back from distraction.
